Book DescriptionFilled with his trademark humor and warmth, Jon Hassler s The Staggerford Murders and The Life and Death of Nancy Clancy s Nephew offer a welcome return to the town that has captivated readers for years.In The Staggerford Murders , residents of the Ransford Hotel "solve" the nine- year-old murder of esteemed Staggerford citizen Neddy Nichols and the disappearance of his widow, Blanche. Hassler s wry humor is in full force as this wonderful tale unfolds. In the more poignant and bittersweet The Life and Death of Nancy Clancy s Nephew , elderly W.D. Nestor finds his loneliness dispelled by his friendship with a young Staggerford boy, but it is a sudden visit to his one hundred-year-old Aunt Nancy that provides the peace he has always been looking for.
